Earthquake shakes Northern California

GREENVILLE, CA - At least 22 aftershocks have struck following an earthquake in far northeastern California that was felt as far away as San Francisco and in two other states.

There have been no reports of injury or serious damage.

Officials say the magnitude-5.7 quake broke dishes and shook mirrors when it hit at 8:47 p.m. Thursday.

The U.S. Geological Survey's National Earthquake Center says it was centered near Greenville, about 25 miles southwest of Susanville. It was followed by multiple aftershocks, including a magnitude 4.9 temblor that struck early Friday morning.

Pacific Gas & Electric said about 660 customers lost power on the southwestern edge of Lake Almanor at about 9:39 p.m. Thursday. The company did not immediately clarify whether the outage was due to the quake.
